NAW Staff, Wednesday 18 July 2007 - 10:12:56

The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co., headquartered in Quincy, Mass., has purchased Green-e certified renewable energy certificates from Norcross, Ga.-headquartered renewable energy retailer Sterling Plant to match 100% of its electricity use at a new store in Kennebunk, Maine. The store will receive 2,700,000 kWh of renewable energy annually.

"Our Kennebunk store was designed to be energy-efficient," says Steve Krupski, senior vice president for construction at Stop & Shop. "We're committed to investments which permit us to be community-minded and help to control our bottom line in today’s world of high energy costs."
